Another fun workout by Tamiliee. The cues were easy to follow and knowing
that Tamilee is not so young, either, is an inspiration for me. She has
the body and midsection you usually associate with someone much younger, so
she inspires me to keep moving!!!
A Rockin' and Rollin' good time for those who like to boo-ga

"Finally! A workout that pumps up the music and focuses on having fun and being yourself.
I watched the DVD through the first time, and thought, "Bah. This looks like a waste of time, I don't think I'll even break out a sweat". But boy, did I. And it wasn't because the workout was hard, it was because I responded to Tamilee's prompts of 'giving it all you've got', and 'letting loose'. Somehow she just managed to lure me out of being in a tight aerobics shell and break out into dance. I shall admit that there have been moments where I have been so into the groove of a particular step in a combination that I keep on doing it instead of moving on.
Tamilee is good at cueing, laid back and motivating without being girly, mushy or perky. In this DVD of Fit to the Hits, she breaks out into song quite a bit. If you have the Motown Moves DVD, she sings a lot less - this doesn't bother me too much, but some people have based their entire judgement of the workout based on her singing. For chrissake, once you've got the moves down, you can switch to the music only version if it bothers you that much. For me, the breaking out into song contributes to the laid-back-be-yourself-cut-loose-have-fun atmosphere.
The moves are not complicated. Tamilee cues very well and takes you through difficult moves at half time before performing the move at tempo. If you can do a grapevine, a chasse, jumprope or a step-touch - then you can do this workout. There are a few bits of the workout which are high impact, and she doesn't tell you how you can modify them, so you just have to think of how to modify yourself.
Now, here are the songs, in order of appearance:
1 - Free Ride (Warmup)
2 - Your Love is Driving Me Crazy
3 - China Grove
4 - Rock 'n Roll Band
5 - The Kid is Hot Tonight
6 - Free Ride (Cooldown) "
Not as good as Motown Moves, but still pretty fun!

"Fit to the Hits Rock Hard Assets is about 32 1/2 minutes long with warmup and cooldown. Tamilee does a good job of cueing. She sang some of the time, which got a little old after a while.
There's quite a few twisting moves in this one doesn't make it easy to do on carpeted surface without modifying. Also, not a very intense workout, but still fun.
The songs were recognizable...mostly 70s rock hits (covers).
Recommend to beginners/low intermediate with a bit of dance experience."
Very enjoyable workout

"I am fairly new to exercising, and I found this to be a great workout. It was fun, well-cued and easy to follow. This video gets me excited about working out and motivates me to get off the couch and get moving.
For those who have been exercising for a while, it may not be enough, but for someone like me it is the perfect video."
